That's not to say there is nothing of value in the ebook and it isn't expensive so there is nothing lost, really.
But one cannot seriously expect the four apps the author discusses having been serious efforts. They really have no meaningful functionality and there are thousands upon thousands of apps just like them in the app store. Not apps that do what they do, but apps that have no meaningful functionality. Sorry, just calling it as I see it.
If you want to develop an app for profit it is like any other software project: You need to start with an idea. In the author's case, it appears the real idea was to get in the app development business then come up with some ideas for apps. Finding the right idea can be challenging for any software project, and that was at least one reason for the author's failure. Marketing is probably the other big reason, but it is hard to market software that doesn't really do anything.
I would also have to question the approach, i.e., dream up an idea then outsource the project. I think it would be really difficult to develop a meaningful design without some command of the development process, and you need to at least have the fundamentals of the design before outsourcing. If you outsource the design, then you really don't have anything in the project.
App development isn't for the author. But that doesn't mean it isn't for anyone.
